“What do you call a potato with glasses?"/"A spectator.”

The potato has a few “-tater” jokes, such as:

Q: What do you call a potato with glasses?”
A: A spectator.


“What do you call a couch potato? A spec-tater!!” was cited in the newsgroup rec.humor in 1991.

“What do you call a helpful potato?"/"A facilitater,” “What do you call a phallic-shaped potato?"/"A dictator” and “What do you call an everyday potato?"/"A commentator” are other “tater” jokes.
